This smaller 500mm is definitely an interesting move from Nikon in these times of 150-600mm zooms. Canon really could come up with such a f/5.6 lens as a successor of the old EF 400mm f/5.6 L USM. An upgrade of the small 400mm wouldn't make any sense anymore, because the new EF 100-400mm Mk. II L IS USM zoom is optically very good at the long tele end, other than the Mk. I predecessor. That said, if I ever will upgrade my EF 500mm, it'll definitely be again a big one - as long as I can carry such a lens.
